Die große Herausforderung: Via Alpina” (The great challenge: Via Alpina), film by Sylvia Rothe and Jan Tröttnow, with Berthold Brommer, Andrea Nenning and the students from the Talander school

The full-feature movie about the crossing of 12 “special needs” teenagers, in three weeks from Vorarlberg to Tirano over Austria, Switzerland and Italy in the summer 2011, with the support of a Via Alpina Travel Fellowship.

Echoing the short movie by Christian Köhlert in which the teacher and social worker gave their perspective, the children themselves are at the foreground in the movie “Via Alpina”. They share their impressions, their difficulties and their joy along the trail – a hike through three alpine countries but also an interior journey along which each of them tremendously gained in maturity.
